We parents remember it like a vivid nightmare. Our children, though, were not yet born. How can they comprehend? What will we say to them? And, perhaps most importantly, how can understanding the events of September 11, 2001 help them understand the scary things they may see on the news today?

Fifteen years past September 11, 2001, terrorism continues to be a threat to our nation. What can end it? We may not yet know, but reading and understanding have always been necessary to heal the wounds of division and violence. And so, with hope, we bring the next generation with us to the bookshelf.

As always, books are here to help.
